Hello, Hermes, It's Me

I've not had much of a chance to think about blog topics considering all of my surplus time has been spent listening to Hello by Adele and weeping like an infant.  Luckily I've only been called upon to complete one actual piece of work today which was to consult on my strap preference from the Hermes Apple Watch collection.  So let's talk about that because right now I have nothing else for you except for some deep longing and sorrow conjured by Adele.

I'm not sure if it's because I follow Hodinkee on Instagram or because there have been a rash of cool watches released this year, but I've been looking at men's and women's watches pretty much non-stop.  Therefore I feel qualified to declare my love for the Hermes version for Apple.  Its appearance is simple yet elegant and sports two of my favorite visual features in a watch - a solid black face, and a leather strap.  As to the style and color of strap, I'm smitten with the "double tour," as they call it, in all colors but lust openly for the capucine (reddish) and the fauve (cognac).  If you're going to get a smart watch, and if you have $1250 laying around, this is my pick.

Now, if you'll excuse me, Adele awaits.
